Blog - Mary Fey to Present PAAIL Communications Strategy at 2019 NLN Education Summit

Mary Fey, PhD, RN, CHSE-A, ANEF will present a session at the 2019 NLN Education Summit based on her most recent publication, “Fostering Civility in Learning Conversations: Introducing the PAAIL Communication Strategy.” Dr. Fey and Cindy Clark, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, ATI Nursing Education, will co-host the session, “Hail to PAAIL! An Evidence-Based Platform to Foster Civility and Meaningful Conversations” will take place on Friday, September 27 from 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm. The NLN Education Summit runs September 26-28 at National Harbor’s Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

The focus of Dr. Fey’s presentation and upcoming publication, PAAIL, is a mnemonic that was developed at the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) to assist those who are learning and developing their advocacy-inquiry skills. The acronym stands for:

Preview:      State what you’d like to talk about

Advocacy1:  I saw – state what was observed, in objective terms

Advocacy2:  I think – your perspective and the impact of the observed behavior

Inquiry:        I wonder – ask the receiver what was on their mind at the time

Listen:          To understand the frames behind the observed action

The full article will appear in an upcoming issue of Nurse Educator, and now available online.

Dr. Fey was named an NLN Academy of Nursing Education Fellow at last year’s summit and she is excited to return to this year’s event as a presenter!
